Q&A: Attention

The seventy-eighth question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “When do you most need attention from your lover?”

I thought this would be a much easier question to answer than it turned out to be, and try as I might, I can’t seem to even figure out how to explain why.  The immediate answer that pops to mind is “when I need support”, like when I’m going through a loss,or some other hardship and need consoling, or a hug, or even just someone to be there with me through it…but for some reason, leaving that as the sole answer feels wrong. I wish I fully understood why.  But I guess since I can’t make this answer make any more sense, I’ll have to leave it at that…

Q&A: Concentration

The seventy-seventh question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “When do you have the strongest ability to concentrate?”

Um…wow, I don’t know. I guess for the most part, at night, but even then I need to be motivated to concentrate on whatever it is I’m trying to do…so I suppose the ‘real’ answer would be whenever something is interesting or pressing enough to motivate me to do it, or when I’m really inspired in the direction of whatever it is I’m trying to concentrate on. Otherwise, I admittedly get distracted pretty easily.

Q&A: No Values

The seventy-sixth question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “Who has the weakest set of values in your family? And among your friends?”

It’s sad to say that there are a few people in my family with pretty weak values, but it’s the truth; I mean, for example, I do have both a half-brother and a step-brother that have never even met their nephew (my son), despite that he’s almost 5 years old, and they’ve been living in the same city as I have since before he was born. Perhaps that, in itself, is not too terrible (though it still feels like it is to me), but both of them have also used and abused their fathers, completely disregarding how their actions made them feel, and considering neither of their fathers (particularly my step-father) deserved it at all, it’s impossible to imagine a world in which I could ever respect either of them again.

When it comes right down to it, though, I’d have to say that my half-brother wins for ‘weakest values’, because his actions in the past few months have gone above and beyond what I believed he would be capable of in terms of horrible treatment of our father, and when you add that to the years of neglecting his family, while simultaneously acting like he’s so much better than everyone else and deserves not only their love and respect, but also their money…yeah, I think he’s lacking some moral fiber, and has definitely lost any sense of family values. I won’t go into any more detail about the things he’s done, but really, a year ago I never would have thought someone could outshine my step-brother in the ‘selfish, entitled child’ department, but my half-brother has certainly succeeded there.  And I look forward to the day I get to tell him exactly how I feel about his actions.

As for my friends, I’m not sure.  I’ve certainly had a few friends who have been perfectly fine with living off of others and doing as little work as possible to get through life (and usually bitching about even that), but I don’t actually want to think too much about who has the weakest values out of my friends, because my friends are awesome people, for the most part, so…I’m gonna end this here.  Happy Valentine’s Day!

Q&A: Hot Bodies

The seventy-fifth question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “Who had the best body you ever made love with?”

Oh, this is by far the easiest question I’ve had yet! Hands down, without a doubt, the ‘award’ for best body I’ve ever made love with goes to my current boyfriend.  Mmmm, dear god, that boy…strong, sexy back, perfect ass, gorgeous biceps and abs, and….well, I’ll leave it at that, because the rest is TMI ;) But yes, no question whatsoever; he’s got the best body. And I’m not just saying that because he’s the one I’m currently with, because he’ll probably never even see this; he really is worlds above the people I’ve been with in the past.  I could look at him naked all day…which is why I’m lucky that he prefers to be naked. I’ve never really cared much about men’s bodies until him, but I don’t know how I could possibly resist his body.  It’s just perfect. And now, off to daydream about that…

Q&A: Profanity

The seventy-fourth question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “What is the strongest profanity you use?”

Wow, I don’t even know how to answer this. How do you rate profanity? What is considered to be stronger profanity than something else?  I mean, I say all of the common ‘profane’ words, fairly regularly – as evidenced by this blog – so I’m not averse to it, so it’s not like there’s one word I try to say any less than any others because it’s extra bad or something. So…fuck?  I don’t know. It all seems pretty innocent to me.

Q&A: Weakest

The seventy-third question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “What was the weakest you’ve ever been?”

Well, let’s see; are we talking physical weakness, mental weakness or emotional weakness?  If it’s emotional weakness, I would say it was probably 10 months ago, when my ex-boyfriend moved out.  We’d been together for more than three years, and most of that time had been spent with me supporting him through school and through a chronic illness he was suffering, so when he suddenly ended things the day before my birthday, it was incredibly hard to deal with. The relationship had certainly needed to end for some time, but the unexpected nature of his departure, the timing, the disdain he suddenly seemed to have for me (and seems to have held on to), and the curves that threw into my life in every way possible were, at the time, just too much to deal with.  I spent a good length of time trying to recover from that, which led me to come down with pretty much every illness under the sun as a result, and I was a complete mess emotionally. Luckily, I got through it, and it’s been a very long time since any of that has bothered me, but I’d still have to say it was probably the weakest I’ve ever been emotionally.

Mentally, though, I think I’d unfortunately have to say that the weakest I’ve been has been in the past few months, as I’ve attempted to navigate the new relationship I entered into almost six months ago. I’m with a wonderful guy, who I am very happy with, but there are a lot of issues with his ex-wife and their son, as well as insecurity issues on my part, as he is the first person who has really wanted to be with me for me and not for what I can offer him…which is surprisingly hard to get used to. So it’s taken a lot of work to struggle through, but he (and our relationship) is worth it, so I’m trying to keep strong. I’ve definitely had more than my fair share of weak moments as a result of it, though.

Now, as for physical weakness, my weakest point could either be now, when I am basically unable to even do dishes or drive, and sometimes end up in severe pain just from showering…or it could have been after my stint in the hospital 8 or so years ago, when I basically had to relearn to walk because I’d been in a hospital bed on heavy duty meds for too long. I was going to go into more detail on that, but then we’re tying into the mental and emotional weakness again, and that could get confusing, so…now is not the time.  But hey, at least this was finally a real answer to something!

Q&A: Tempted

The seventy-second question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “What true crime have you been most tempted to commit?”

Well, that’s easy: Murder. Who hasn’t? Well, I guess “tempted” might not be the appropriate term there, so perhaps the truth would actually just be ‘assault’, but you know; one is only a step away from the other :P No, it’s probably legitimately assault. There are some people who just really need a good punch to the face.  Oh wait, I don’t think that’s a ‘true crime’, is it?  If not, then yeah, murder. It’s funny how casually I can discuss this, given how impossible it would be for me to actually see it through. But there you have it!

Q&A: Bad Criminals

The seventy-first question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “Who do you think was the worst criminal in history?”

Okay, to be honest, I’m getting really sick of these “crime and punishment” questions, and I can’t wait for them to be done. I don’t have good answers for them, and they’re not overly introspective, so they’re really just kind of boring me at the moment…so I’m going to cop out on this one.

Who do I think was the worst criminal in history? I don’t know. There have been a lot of really terrible criminals, and this question could be taken to mean who was the poorest at their job, or who was the most evil, and in either case I’d want to research that to be sure I gave this a comprehensive answer, and that’s just not something I have the patience for right now…so I am sticking with”I don’t know”.  Someone, for sure.  And that is all.  Sorry guys.

Q&A: Punishment

The seventieth question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “What is the worst punishment you’ve ever had to endure?”

Well, I guess that depends on what you consider to be a ‘punishment’. I’m not sure I’ve been legitimately punished for much – though that might just be my incredibly poor memory acting up again – but sometimes it certainly feels like I’m being punished for something.  Take right now, for example…I somehow developed a lung infection a few weeks ago, which ended up resulting in a trip to the ER on Christmas Eve, which revealed a broken rib.  A few days later, I developed incredible sciatic pain in my hip and leg, which has only become progressively worse as time has gone on, and then last night I managed to break another rib, in the same way as the first, while the first is still healing and I still have the sciatic pain…and the infection seems to be coming back, somehow.  So all of this certainly feels like a punishment, but logically I know it’s not (and I can’t imagine what it would be a punishment for anyway), so…I’m not sure what to consider here.

As mentioned previously, I’ve been in abusive relationships in the past, and I was certainly “punished” during those (with threats, physical abuse, etc.), but I’m also not sure those things apply, as they were not justifiable punishments; they were punishments in the eyes of my abusers, but just straight up abuse in the eyes of anyone else.  So I’d say that also doesn’t count.

So legitimate punishments? I don’t know. I guess I haven’t really done much that would lead to punishment…unless you count going through the pain of a breakup because of things I did/did not do, or getting in trouble with my mom as a child, or something like that…nothing severe, at any rate. I guess this is another one I simply don’t have a good answer for.  Man, I’m boring.

Q&A: Historical

The sixty-ninth question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “What crime from history fascinates you most?”

I feel really bad for giving all these crappy answers lately, but I haven’t got a good one for this one, either.  I tried quite hard to find one crime that I could say fascinates me more than all the rest, but to be honest, I find case studies on crime (especially murder) fascinating in pretty much every case, so it’s almost impossible for me to narrow down which one fascinates me the most.  I would say it’s likely either one that is as yet unsolved, or one that was incredibly clever, but I couldn’t choose one over the others.  I just like to study them all!  So, yeah, another short answer.  Many apologies.
